Consider running away to the circus at the Gamma Phi Circus Morning Show at Illinois State University! We at Gamma Phi Circus at Illinois State University would like to cordially invite you to join us for the 26th Annual Gamma Phi Circus Morning Show on Friday, April 12, 2019 under the Redbird Arena Big Top, in Normal, IL. Our morning show begins at 10:00am, and concludes by noon.
In 2019, Gamma Phi Circus will celebrate our 90th year as an organization at Illinois State University. So a big show is in store for our audiences to mark this special anniversary! We are the oldest and longest running collegiate circus in the United States, carrying forward a long-held tradition of circus in Bloomington-Normal and the midwest. The members of Gamma Phi Circus are students, faculty and staff of Illinois State University. Members are representative of all colleges and a variety of majors. Between multiple practices a week, campus and show exhibitions, members hone their skills in their respective acts throughout the academic year. The showcase of their achievements are for all to enjoy at the Morning Show.
The Morning Show is a favorite field trip experience of many schools in the state of Illinois. It showcases the individual dedication and teamwork inherent in circus performance, with over 80 performers in more than a dozen acts including German Wheel, Trampoline Wall, Silks and Lyric Hoop (aerial), Trapeze, Russian Swing, Tightwire, Juggling, Acrobatics, Clowning, and much, much more. Each year thousands of K-12 students join us for the fun, thrills and excitement of a circus performance just for them. We hope your students can be a part of this special year's performance of Morning Show!
